Whether you just moved into your current home or have lived there for 30 years, there is a STORY to be uncovered in your house’s HISTORY.

Oh the Stories Your House Could Tell!

Our House History service can provide you with a wealth of information on the previous owners of your house and land. You may have interesting connections and/or commonalities with former owners that you never knew about. Explore the possibilities…

To uncover your house’s HISTORY, we will delve into deeds, census records, city directories, newspapers,  and all other available resources.  We will gather and present you with the details and information we can find on former homeowners and landowners. Available information may include: names, ages, family members, occupations and the stories of their lives while living in your house.

Deed Search & Lookups

Are you interested in searching for your house’s deeds? A deed is the legal document that transfers property and property rights from one party to another. Deeds are often located at the county level with the county register.  It’s not always easy to travel to the right county deed office or register. We can help. We have searched and retrieved records from many of the deed offices throughout New Jersey.
